Excessive Dreaming

Lately I've been doing some research on excessive dreaming, something I have suffered from for years. So far I have found that it is probably a symptom of a sleep disorder and there's not much you can do about it. To some, dreaming excessively may not seem like such a bad thing. However, take it from me, a night full of dreams doesn't give you much rest. Here's what it is really like:

Plunging into the deep
from moment of pillow touch,
I am tossed in
the maelstrom of night,

Turning in a vortex of
images recent and forgotten.

Three times I wrench myself
from the Sandman's grasp
Only to be lulled back
by his sirens.

At last, day
finds me spluttering
and crawling up the shore.

I arise from my bed.
My waking hours
taste of salt.
